Jamie: Britney Was Drugged!

The following italicized article is from

Taking the stand Monday afternoon, Britney Spears' dad Jamie testified in hopes of making the temporary restraining orders against Adnan Ghalib, Sam Lutfi, and a former lawyer John Eardley permanent. Ready for battle, the eldest Spears had some fighting words for the men who were once central figures in his daughter's life.

While Jamie was unable to point to any specific incidences of Lutfi threatening Britney, he pointed to menacing text messages he received from the alias "Citygalin310".

"I absolutely believe that Citygalin310 is Sam Lutfi. Sam is very deceitful and lies." Jamie said. In one of his more explosive statements, Jamie claimed "Sam put drugs in [Britney's] biscuits", often kept her out until 5 a.m., and restricted Britney's contact with her family.

Jamie has also been under scrutiny since stepping in as his daughter's conservator, but he says Britney has greatly improved under his watch.

"[Her career] was pretty well a disaster, nothing was going on, but she was in the tabloids," he says, describing the time period during which Lutfi oversaw Britney's activities. "[Today] weight-wise she's eating properly, she's very stable, making her meetings, and taking care of the babies."

As previously reported, Britney did not appear in court and neither did Ghalib or Lutfi.

Jamie Spears Calls Sam Lutfi a "Predator"

The following italicized article is from

In a rare open-court hearing this afternoon, Britney Spears' father Jamie Spears testified against her former constant companion, Sam Lutfi, whom he labeled as a "predator" and "very dangerous."

The testimony from Papa Spears was part of a hearing to determine whether or not restraining orders against Lutfi and Brit's ex-boyfriend, photographer Adnan Ghalib, should be extended. The actual hearing isn't until Wednesday, but Jamie testified today because he will be out of town.

In his testimony, Brit's dad recalled how he discovered how he believes that Sam, who has been forbidden from contacting the pop star for almost a year, was keeping in touch with her.

According to Jamie, Britney's nanny discovered the singer talking on a cell phone in her room during the wee hours of the night. Problem is — Brit-Brit is not allowed to have a cell phone. She must use either her father's phone or the house phone.

So when his daughter was away from the house one day, he had her head of security go through Britney's purse, where he discovered a prepaid Nokia cell phone. He then confronted her with discovery and she explained that someone had given it to her while she was at the Peninsula Hotel. Per Jamie's testimony, the person handed it to Brit and said, "This is from Sam and Adnan. Take the phone."

Perusing the numbers on the phone, Jamie saw several calls to people he believed to be Sam — using the code name "CityGalN310" — and Adnan, who supposedly used the code name "Ruba."

On Jan. 10, Sam, using the CityGalN310 name, allegedly sent several texts to Jamie before ultimately calling him on the phone.

"Sam wanted to know if her could help me in any way," Jamie told the court. "He began to cry and fall apart. His mother and family is very upset because I had given him a bad name."

About the texts, Jamie testified, "They were very disturbing. They felt like a threat... like someone was trying to extort my daughter."

And Brit's dad wasn't done with the harsh talk, as he then described Lutfi as a "predator... He's very dangerous to my daughter, controling. He causes her a lot of anguish and disbelief in her mind and that she's lost without him.

"While Adnan was neither present at the hearing, nor did he send legal representation, Sam's lawyer Brian Freedman maintained that his client is not a threat, that there's no evidence at this point that CityGal is indeed Sam or that his client had even called Britney in the first place.

During a break in the hearing, Freedman told OK! that restraining orders were "created for stalkers, but there isn't anything in Jamie's testimony or in the court papers that prove Sam and Britney even had one actual confirmed phone conversation. It's hard to prove 'harrassment' if you can't prove they've even talked once in 11 months."

Britney Sneaks Calls -- Daddy Pissed

The following italicized article is from

There's a hearing underway in the Britney Spears restraining order case against Sam Lutfi and Adnan Ghalib.

Daddy Jamie Spears is on the stand right now, explaining that Britney somehow got her hands on a pre-paid cell phone which caused him fits because they have been strictly monitoring the phones she's able to use.

The nanny heard Britney talking to Sam and Adnan on the pre-paid phone in the wee hours of the morning one day. It appears Jamie believes Sam and Adnan got her the phone in an attempt to poison her against Jamie and torpedo the conservatorship.

If Sam did have any contact with Britney, he would have violated a court order to stay the hell away from her.

Jamie is trying to make the temporary restraining order against the dynamic duo permanent.

Britney's Ex-Manager Fights Back Against Restraining Order

The following italicized article is from

A manager and confidante to Britney Spears when her life was at the peak of turmoil, Sam Lutfi insists that in these calmer days he's no threat to her safety.

Fighting back against a restraining order, Lutfi 34, not only denies he's been harassing Spears, but claims that it's been Spears reaching out to him – not the other way around, sending him text messages even though court orders forbid her from doing so.

"I don't think anyone would want to have on public record allegations of behavior that weren't committed," Lutfi's lawyer Bryan Freedman tells PEOPLE. "A restraining order to is protect someone against stalkers and people who want to commit violence, and that description doesn't fit my client."

In court documents filed Friday, Lutfi, 34, does admit that he's passed messages on to her through her hairdresser and others, including her ex-boyfriend, Adnan Ghalib, 36. But Lutfi argues that the messages weren't harmful in any way.

"I have not, in any alleged communications with Britney, her hairdresser or any other person, threatened any act of violence against Britney or her family," he states in the papers.

Lutfi's lawyer agues in the filing that the singer, 27, and her father haven't provided evidence that she's suffered emotional distress from Lutfi's indirect contact. As co-conservators, Jamie and lawyer Andrew Wallet hold indefinite control over her affairs since her two forced hospitalizations in early 2008.

In his request for the restraining orders, Jamie Spears accused Lutfi of working with Ghalib and a lawyer to "disrupt the conservatorship with utter disregard for Ms. Spears's health and well being," court documents show. Lutfi allegedly sent a text message to the hairdresser saying, "I've done everything I can to free her from [the conservatorship]. Very close to getting her free now."

Lutfi has since sued the Spears family for defamation and battery. Jamie Spears is set to testify at a 1:30 p.m. hearing on Monday to uphold the restraining order.

Lutfi: BS Stands For More Than Britney Spears

The following italicized article is from

Sam Lutfi is fighting back against Britney Spears' permanent restraining order against him, saying he never threatened her in any way.

Spears got a temporary restraining order last month claiming Lufti threatened to expose Spears family secrets, which they say have no basis in reality.

Sam claims in legal papers, "I have not, in any alleged communications with Britney, her hairdresser or any other person, threatened any act of violence against Britney or her family."

It's a confusing statement, because Brit never accused Sam of threatening violence

.Lutfi claims he received anonymous text messages saying Jamie Spears was about to release a letter written by Brit "making serious accusations" against him.

Sam says he called Jamie to discuss the letter.

The Spears clan didn't see it that way, especially since Lufti was supposed to cease all contact with Brit.

UPDATE: An L.A. judge just extended the restraining order against Sam, Adnan Ghalib and Jon Eardley until Wednesday, so Poppa Spears could have time to testify.

Mel Gibson: Spears Dad Pulled Her Through Breakdown

The 'Braveheart' actor phoned the pop star to offer her advice while she was struggling through her recent problems.

He said: "She's a nice kid. She was just going through a rough patch. You see kids that you know in the industry... I just felt like this poor kid she's lining up to be stoned. I just thought, 'I wonder if anyone is reaching out to her', so I just called her and she's doing great now."

Britney's public meltdown saw her shave her head in February 2007 and culminated in her being hospitalised in January 2008 and losing custody of her two sons Sean Preston, three, and Jayden James, two.

She has since got her career and life back on track and is to embark on her new 33-date tour 'Circus' on March 3.

Despite his friendship with Britney, Mel - who invited the 27-year-old star to holiday with his family in Costa Rica last March - does not take any credit for helping the 'Womanizer' singer out of her troubled spell.

He told US TV talk show host Jimmy Kimmel: "It's got nothing to do with me. She pulled herself out of this, and her dad - he's the real hero."

The 53-year-old Hollywood actor also revealed his regret at not helping actor Heath Ledger before his tragic death in January last year from an accidental drug overdose.

He said: "I should have called him years before. I didn't really know the ins and outs of what was up with him, but I don't believe it was just an accident. Maybe, I could have called him. When you see sort of an impending tragedy that might go wrong, it just felt like I should do something about it."

Heath won the best supporting actor Oscar last night (22.02.09) for his role in 'The Dark Knight' - which he was working on at the time of his death.

Earlier this month, Britney, desperate to have her toddler sons Sean and Jayden on tour with her, agreed to front ex Kevin Federline $4,000 a week and his own tour bus to bring the boys along. But that could all go up in smoke over K-Fed’s plan to invite main squeeze Victoria Prince to accompany the family on the road.

“Britney doesn’t want Victoria on tour-period. She’s fooling the bill, and she wants to call the shots,” a source reveals in the March 2 edition of The National Enquirer. “Britney doesn’t want to see her boys reach out for Victoria.”

The 26-year-old professional volleyball player has become like a second mom to Britney and Kevin’s sons snce moving into the stay-at-home dad’s Tarzana, California home, tabloid tattles say.

“Victoria has been playing full-time mom to the boys since she quit her job at FOX Sports in January. She’s even skipped volleyball practices and games to be with Kevin and the boys.”
